DeMorgenzon Reserve Chardonnay & Chenin Blanc 2016 Pre-Release

We are very excited to be able to announce the latest releases of two of the most successful wines of last year (along with their regular Chenin Blanc). We were very fortunate to have Carl van der Merwe host a tasting for us last year and everyone who attended left very impressed with DeMorgenzon as a winery. We sold all we could of these two exceptional wines from the previous vintage.

These wines are in high demand as they have had phenomenal success in various competitions over the last few years and have also received very high praise from both the hugely influential South African Platter's Wine Guide and Tim Atkin MW who is rapidly becoming one of the most admired journalists who cover South African wine and his annual guide is eagerly anticipated. Some technical data is attached below for the 2016 vintage.

Download Notes Technical Notes


"The 2016 Reserve Chardonnay has an even better nose than the 2015: lemon sherbet, yellow flowers and freshly sliced white peach bursting from the glass, augmented by a hint of tinned apricot. This is irresistible. The palate is well balanced, very expressive with a superb line of acidity. This is an exuberant Chardonnay that barely knows what to do with all that nascent energy. Carl van der Merwe suggested that the 2015 Reserve Chardonnay might have greater longevity. You know, I suspect this might have a longer arc." 94 pts Neal Martin Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

DeMorgenzon Reserve Chenin Blanc 2016

South Africa

Download Notes Technical Notes


"The 2016 Reserve Chenin Blanc, which will be released summer 2017, was slightly deeper in color compared to other vintages. It has a composed bouquet with nectarine, melted wax and dried pineapple scents, a touch of dandelion in the background. The palate is fresh on the entry with crisp acidity. I find more nuance and harmony here compared to the 2015, a delicacy married with intensity in the finish, a tang of clear honey on the aftertaste (although there was no botrytis in the vineyard)." 93pts Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
